Democrat Budget: “More taxes, more bloated spending, and no attempt to reform

WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement as House Democrats prepare to pass their Fiscal Year 2009 budget conference report – a blueprint for more spending, more taxes, and no reform.

“The Democrat budget is just more of the same from this majority – more taxes, more bloated spending, and no attempt to reform or rein in the rising costs of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security,” said Rep. Wilson.

“This legislation will raise $683 billion in taxes on more than 115 million Americans.  Not only is this the largest tax hike in American history, it is the worst possible idea when the economy is in a slowdown.  This budget is an attack upon American families today with tax increases and out-of-control spending.  And, it is a letdown to the future generations of this country because it fails to take any steps towards reforming the Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security entitlement programs our children and grandchildren will have to face.”

    Joe,
    You’re on the attack now, but when we replublicans has the majority, we had no budget reform either. Do you have opposition this June?
    That’s most unfortunate. The congressional republicans have forsaken the gop core principles of personal responsibilty, less government and lower taxes. This is too little too late. Joe, you should just retire.
